After In The Bedroom and Little Children, he’s close... real close. But right now I think Field is still a well of untapped potential. I like the way he handles actors, but I’m more enamored with the writing skills he brings to difficult projects. He likes to break the rules, and somehow is able to get away with it. His direction is visually very fluid and a masterpiece is in his future, but I think he’s still a couple of films away.
